With kids home for the summer months, a local non-profit indicates some families are starting to experience a food shortage because they have more meals they need to provide.
Community Action feels this is a chance to promote their food pantry co-op and their Executive Director, Alison Rumler-Gomez indicates a lot of families are unaware of the new system they have gone to.
The food pantry co-op has become a very popular option for their clients and now that kids have more free time, Rumler-Gomez says they have volunteer opportunities for the youth as well.
Kids can participate in helping clean the toys and materials for the Head Start program along with stock shelves within the food pantry. Rumler-Gomez indicates there is no shortage of things to do for anyone wanting to be a part of that program.
